You have likely heard of most the big names coming to Van this summer, but if you're anything like me, you appreciate quality music with less of the hype. If paying hundreds for Drake is not what you have in mind, this'll be a refreshing list of artists and shows for you to swing to without the burden of outrageous ticket prices and generic pop noise we so frequently hear blasting on the radio.

We all have unique tastes when it comes to music, but my top picks will surely be a blast. Sadly, Cage the Elephant was cancelled, but for chill vibes and talented musicians, these other shows will not disappoint.
